I have slow speed, so always takes 4 or 5 hours; 1st 2 attempts stalled, on day
I received update e mail, annoyingly at 83%.

Mazda's map contractors responded to my moan, saying that I needed to wait for the new
TOOLBOX to d/load; this should have been available before they issue the new map notification
e mail.

When I moaned to HERE about out of date content on new maps on my Qashqai, they said
the delay in issuing fresh content, was down to NISSAN having to validate content,
ie were always at least 12-18 months out of date.

Like poster above, I was puzzled that HERE's website mapping was very up to date,
(recall it's updated daily or weekly) yet newly issued HERE SD Maps didn't reflect this.
Always struck me as odd statement, as the car maker is not a mapping expert.

I registered with Here Maps and their map shown online is already up to date for the ex-Churchill Way flyover in Liverpool. I checked again on my in car Mazda satnav and the flyover is still there. As a double check I put the sd card into my laptop and it informed me that I have the current update installed, July 2020, and if I want any updates in future I will have to pay for them. I don't think I will bother.

Engine/Transmission/Powertrain/Exhaust / Re: Common Rail chip upgrade

I used one for a while but have since taken it out as I found I was having issues with diesel contamination in the oil sump due to failed DPF regens.  It may not have been the chip but I removed it just in case.  I used it for 2 years and the car seemed a bit more responsive but I found the fuel consumption to be the same or worse when set to better performance and in order to get better fuel consumption the performance dropped.  I suppose it is common sense to expect higher performance to come at a higher fuel cost but the claims made from these chip companies don't always stand up to scrutiny.

Can't say I am overly impressed with Mazdas efforts with satnav. It took me nearly two hours to install the latest version maps. Checking the sd card in the car, I see that a flyover in Liverpool. Churchill Way, which was demolished last year, is still showing. Not to be trusted to show you the way home.
Mazda use Here maps. Sign up to the Map Creator and report the missing flyover plus other errors you may see. HERE Map Creator

Vehicle Entertaintment / Navigation Systems / How to?

When I purchased my CX5 I had spare tyre fitted by the garage prior to taking the car. I was given a bag of bits and pieces to use should I ever wish to remove tyre to use in another car.
That moment is now as I am selling my 2017 CX5 and have removed spare tyre. Unfortunately, I never knew in what order the subwoofer fittings were and am now looking at a number of parts that  - at least some - I have no idea how to install. I would be very grateful if someone is able to give me an idea as to what order the assembly is done.

Thank you for staying On Topic please.

Update went flawlessly. Took some 30 mins (Mazda server downloads @ some 40---50 Mbps, but your download speed depends on your internet connection), and another 30 mins to install (this depends on the R/W speed of your computer and the used SD card).
R/W speeds can be increased by using a better quality SD card, just clone your old one to a better one.
Using a better SD also speeds up loading nav upon starting your vehicle.

You have been lucky. No matter how clever you are at downloading the update, if the map info is out of date it's a bit useless wouldn't you say?

Is anyone else having problems with the mazda toobox? I have tried on 2 PC, one with Win 7 pro and the other with Win 10 Pro.
On both, I start the toolbox, it checks for updates, then opens to where I have to agree with the license agreement, but I cannot scroll down in order to activate the Agree button and click it.
The cookie acceptance window pops up, but I get the same result whatever cookie option I go for.
Thanks for any help,
Andrew
